An overnight house fire ruined Christmas for one local family

The cause and amount of damage are still under investigation. But now Tammie Busby and her daughter are without Christmas gifts and their tree.

Busby says although she doesn't have any gifts, she says what matters most is that she and her daughter made it out okay.

"I lost all of my belongings I lost my dog but, I can get another couch I can get another bed. I will never ever get another Bethany," says Busby.

Busby did go get a voucher from the Red Cross today for clothing and shoes, but she still needs help. To donate you're encouraged to call (205) 544-1116.
